Great Fall Reads

Fall is upon us! Leaves are starting to change! The air is getting crisp! I love this time of year!
We've been talking a lot about the changing of the seasons and how trees are preparing to let their leaves go even though they are at their most beautiful point. We know that sometimes we have to let things go even if they are special to us, even if they have been with us all year long, even if they look so good on our branches. It's all about letting go, moving on, and staying in the present moment. We must learn to embrace that!
I've listed below some great books to bring to your children for the Fall:

Let it Fall by Maryann Cocca-Leffler - Celebrate all things Autumn! Great book for talking about all the great things that happen in the Fall - practice jumping into leaves from Chair Pose, standing tall in Tree Pose to get ready for picking apples!

Autumn Walk by Ann Burg - Visualize all the vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows that Fall brings to us as you take a mindful walk through the leaves. Practice a Kinhin meditation being ever so present while you walk.
